If you can remember, not too long ago, Kyrie Irving revealed he believed in the flat Earth theory, which was absurd, of course. But somehow, another NBA superstar stepped up to the plate and revealed he, too, rejected a basic (and common) scientific fact.
We regret to inform you that Stephen Curry, the main man of the Golden State Warriors (until Kevin Durant came), believes that the moon landing was a fraud. Yes, that moon landing of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin in 1969.
The two-time NBA MVP raised eyebrows on Monday, December 10, after revealing he doubted NASA actually put a man on the moon almost five decades ago.
Speaking on the “Winging It” podcast, Curry actually brought up the topic during the more than hour-long episode with fellow NBA players Kent Bazemore, Andre Iguodala, and Vince Carter.
Curry asked his fellow guests, “We ever been to the moon?” To which they replied, “Nope.”
“They’re gonna come get us,” Curry claimed. “I don’t think so, either.”
We’re not sure who Curry thinks is out to get them, aliens or social media? But the latter did indeed have a field day on Curry’s comments that NASA themselves had to step in, seeing an opening to school the three-time NBA champion on the facts.
"There's lots of evidence NASA landed 12 American astronauts on the Moon from 1969-1972. We'd love for Mr. Curry to tour the lunar lab at our Johnson Space Center in Houston, perhaps the next time the Warriors are in town to play the Rockets," NASA spokesman Allard Beutel said in a statement to CNN. "We have hundreds of pounds of Moon rocks stored there, and the Apollo mission control. During his visit, he can see first-hand what we did 50 years ago, as well as what we're doing now to go back to the Moon in the coming years, but this time to stay."
And Curry replied with a single emoji, which can mean he’s excited to get schooled, or he’s proud he just finessed his way into NASA by acting like a fool.
Dear, Steph, we know you can make moon shots, but this is going a bit too far, like literally.
